Hi guys, this is my very first post on this troublefreepool forum.
We went ahead and bought a house with a lap pool in the backyard. We both are utterly clueless when it comes to pool maintenance.
i actually had someone from the pool cleaning service to "show me the ropes" yesterday. I thought I learned enough. NOPE! I'm still trying to grasp what I need/shouldn't need to do. Needless to say, I will be here often!
My major major major questions are (been searching all over the Internet for an easy answer):
what is the best pump schedule for my programmable pump? Just a baseline to begin with.
And the the pool heater is being finicky. I cannot determine which rpm will actually turn on the heater. It's driving me bonkers. This morning, I turned up the pump from 1200 rpm to 2200 and the heater started working. Then I came home from work and it was off! Why? I did all the troubleshooting and still couldn't figure out why it stopped. I was wondering if it has to do with water flow rpm.
Any my feedback or advice will greatly be appreciated.
